Life Lately

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged! I’m so terrible at consistency! Just not my strong suit. I’m working on it, though! I’ve been consistently working out lately.IMG_2524 I felt like I needed a photo as evidence. Most awkward selfie I’ve ever taken….So embarrassing. Almost as embarrassing as how much I love Taylor Swift. My life has significantly improved since I realized that I’m actually not too cool for T Swift…Or gym selfies. I just want to be sure that when I get ripped no one confuses my hard work for good genetics. Side note: That’s my brother- in-law in the picture. He’s working hard, too, and we coincidentally are on the same gym schedule.

Working out is occupying a lot of my time and head space lately. 4ish months ago I nearly threw out all my bikinis. I though, “Well, I won’t be needing these anymore.” And then I realized I was taking the easy way out. I’ve always been in fairly good shape, but I’ve never been totally ripped. It’s now or never, people! I figure I might as well try once. My husband and I are super competitive with each other, and he’s been in insanely good shape before, (and getting there again) I can’t let him one up me like that! I’ll keep you posted on if it actually happens. I think it will. I’m pretty motivated, but it’s pretty hard for me to imagine. Abs? What are those? This Instagram account has been pretty motivating for me!


Aside from the working out, This past weekend I was on the West Coast getting one of my very best friends married off! It was a really fun weekend, and some much needed time away completely solo. No kid and no husband! That NEVER happens.

I got to flex my creative muscles a bit and do all the flower arranging, too! Way fun!   

In design news…I’ve been working on a fun project for work. It’s sort of in the waiting phase, but should wrap up early June. It’s been super fun, because even though the couple came from an incredibly traditional house, they are now living in a downtown loft, and totally game for all things modern and fun. These are just some of the pieces we’re getting to use that I’m really excited about.

In additional design news….

 I scored this wall hanging at a rummage sale for 25 cents! I have no idea where I will put it, but I love it!

Warm weather is almost here to stay in Indiana! Hallelujah for shorts season! When I first had Jolie, I tried to class up my shorts game a bit in order to look more motherly, but it just wasn’t me. This year, I honestly just don’t care! I like cut off jean shorts and I may just rock them until I’m 50. I apologize in advance. I recently restocked my probably-to-young-for-me shorts collection.

I picked up these from H&M.

Crop tops and high waisted short are basically my summer uniform.

I’ve been wearing the heck out of this simple black mock turtle neck crop top.

I also bought my second EVER romper the other day. How late to that scene am I, right?!? I always felt like they looked a little awkward on me, but suddenly the ease of putting on one clothing item and still looking pulled together, has me SOLD! I’m all about easy, and it just doesn’t get any easier….until you have pee, but I’ll hold it.

For mother’s day, the hubby got me this MVMT watch!

 I’ve been wanting one for a while, and let me tell you….It did not disappoint! It’s such a nice watch for roughly $100. Seriously, I was so impressed from the packaging, to the expensive feel! The all black one is next on my list!

Last but for sure not least….Jolie!!! She’s getting insanely big! She has really turned the corner from  baby to toddler and I’m loving it! 

She’s my little partner in crime everywhere I go, and it makes life a lot more fun! 

We spend all of our time outside. Bubbles are king, and dunking her entire head in the water table is a close second. 

Also, putting babies in the food processor. 😁 Toddlers are sometimes terrifying! 


 Life is perfectly simple, lately. After years of constant travel, it feels good to live at a slow pace! It makes for boring blogs (sorry), but a happy heart! 😍
